Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2013
On tap at Maple Shade location. A dark lager with orange peels and chocolate. On the sweet side, a novelty, some citrus. Mid mouthfeel. Taste like Sabra liquour. Very sugary. A dessert. Understated carbonation a plus.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2014 Tap in Maple Shade. Dark ruby-brown with a short tan head. Light smoke and roast in the nose, taste brings on waves of high-quality dark chocolate and orange )and slight cherry) marmalade/fulling. Fullish body ultra-creamy. Well-executed concept!

Decent beer but nothing really special. You can taste the orange and chocolate reasonably well, with a nice hop bitterness balance. Quite smokey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In a tulip at the Maple Shade location. Pours a dark brown with a red hue to it and a small tan head. The aroma is chocolate, malt and a bit of orange. Sounds a little strange doesn’t it? The flavor has the same, and it works. It has a lively feel to it making it almost soda like. There is a nice sourness making it quite drinkable. Very unique and worth a try.

Tap at IH Maple Shade. Pours out a moderate hue of brown with a small white lacing head. Aroma is of orange zest, chocolate and light roast. Taste is complex with some orange zest, chocolate, light roast and some fruity sweetness. Tastes like one of those chocolate orange candy things that are sliced like oranges and all. Definitely unique, and well done.

Growler shared by pineypower, thank Dean. Pours a mostly brown body with slight dark red edges,and a smaller beige foamy head. Aroma is ridiculous, basically just a chocolate covered orange.....very nice. The body was solid, especialy considering that this was from a grower, medium bodied at best but slightly thin with a good showing on carbonation and a lingering aftertaste. The flavor seems to be a chocolate covered orange dropped in seltzer. All th components from the aroma are there but just not as nicely presented and a little bit watered down. Once again anything IH does is worlds better then th brewpub around the corner from my house.
